The food was not as exquisite as expected for quality price especially the Neili burger.We had to order red wine at four different times as each time the wine we ordered was not available.However we had a good table in the window and the atmosphere was pleasant despite the level of noise who was quite elevated at times .

Très bel endroit, très bons déjeuner.
Le seul bémol, le manque de personnel se fait ressentir. Un peu long avant de passer la commande et après avoir reçu nos plats, difficile de revoir notre serveur pour demander des condiments.

Unfortunately we could not get any service. When we walked in the restaurant we had to wait a few minutes before somebody came to seat us. While we were waiting in the entrance we could see staff chitchatting at the bar. Once seated, we were asked to show our vaccinal passport so we got our phones and ids out, then waited for 20 minutes without anybody coming to see us. We left.

We booked this restaurant expecting to enjoy the Montreal à Table menu. With no prior indication, we were told that we could only order off the brunch menu until 2pm. It was extremely disappointing and the service was pretty mediocre - nothing was done to remedy the mistake. I don't like to criticize the servers, particularly during Covid. I know the hospitality sector is hurting and having difficulty with recruitment. That said, I had reserved this meal to celebrate Thanksgiving with a relative and the experience was poor. It was a waste of money. I am a frequent traveler to Montreal - stay in Old Montreal often including past stays at the Nelligan. I won't go again and do not recommend it to others.

J'ai été un peu déçue. Carte de vin très limitée, et la plupart des choix n'étaient pas disponibles. J'ai demandé mon tartare relevé, et on me dit "non désolée, impossible. Je peux vous emmener du tabasco on the side si vous voulez". Et quand je dis que ce n'est pas pareil, le serveur me dit "même moi je le demande relevé et ils ne le font pas pour moi". Ca fait vraiment douter de la fraicheur dudit tartare: est-il fait d'avance? Au moins il était bon....

Cocktail drink arrived when we got our bill and was not good. Justified that bar guy was not there, no offer to comp or anything. Don’t serve if you can’t. Food was good but not for the price.

Bouffe très (très) ordinaire, bons vins natures mais peu de choix et impossible ce soir-là d'en savoir plus sur leurs "vins mystères"

Service adéquat

Beau décor pour flasher sur le Internets

Les frites sont les accompagnements des plats principaux ce que j’apprécie moins.
Musique pourrait être plus discrète à mon goût en soirée (samedi).
Très bonne ambiance et joli décor: verdures et murs de brique.
Beaux et bons plateaux de charcuteries et fromages à partager!
Très bon choix de vins nature délicieux.

This place is a gem! The food is slightly over priced however it is a Tourist area and the quality is outstanding. The vibe is NYC Meat Packing district Bistro meets a European Cafe. Beautiful Fountain inside with greenery everywhere! Servers are friendly, funny and honest. I will be back!

Went to supper at Nelli Cafe and was pleasantly surprised with how beautiful the cafe is and how good the food was .
We had the MTL à table menu , the plating was pretty and the portions good .
The ambiance was cosy , the service moderetaly quick and discreet .
There wasn't many customers when we got there so it was quiet .
The cafe has like little booths beatifully decorated with plants that are so romantic for couples .
Didn't know what to expect went i reserved but left really glad with the whole experience and will sure come back.

Everything was super! One of us had steak, one of us had salmon and one of us had half a chicken. Food were subtlety flavoured which fit our palates perfectly, however the fries were really dry compared to the sweet potato fries.
